I was born in New Jersey and moved to Florida in 2009. I enjoy managing the office and I am also the Director of Chasolen Education. I love what I do and especially enjoy watching our full mouth reconstructions change lives! There is nothing more incredible than to watch a person’s confidence build in the chair.

I have 2 children and I often wish I could freeze time because they are growing up so fast! In my spare time you will usually find me on the baseball fields or at my daughter’s swim meets. I also have a Golden Retriever named Sophie who believes she is human!

Being a part of changing some one’s life through their smile is more rewarding then any materialistic item I can possess. When I am not helping people rehabilitate their smile, I am kayaking in the groves of Lido Beach, or training physically to be the best version of myself. I was born in New York and raised in New Jersey however, I consider myself a Floridian since anything under 70 degrees makes me cold.

Heather
